The Tiburon's rear disk brakes are self-adjusting to compensate for pad wear. You need to twist the piston clockwise to retract it into the caliper. You should do this using a special tool from Hyundai. Alternatively, you can get generic rear brake caliper tool at most auto parts stores that you can use on the end of your ratchet.

Or, you can be really careful with a pair of channel-lock pliers and grip the edge of the piston, allowing you to twist it back into the caliper.

    This answer is correct with one addition. Once you've retracted the piston you have to make sure two of the notches are straight up and down due to the brake pads having a nipple that fits into the lower notch.

You can use a big flat head screwdriver leave the old pad in place so that you dont damage the piston. or you can use a c-clamp to push it back in.but make sure its not the type that has to be turned back in youll know if it does when you take the pad off the piston cylinder will have two or more notches in it which means youll have to have a special tool to do the job which you can find at auto zone.

Change brake pads


For starters the front and rear us disk pads and it is not hard to do. On the front jack up the front and us jack stand for safety. After you take of the wheel remove the two bolts at the back of the brake caliper remove the caliper and then the old pads us a C- clamp with one of the old pads installed in the caliper then just us the c-clamp to push the cylinder all the way in until it will go no further install new pads put back on. But before you do the next side hit the brake to push the cylinder back out. Go to other side do the same thing. On a side not you only need to replace the rear brakes every other time you do the front. The front wear twice as fast as they do most of the stopping.

To change out rotors and pads on a 2005 tiburon, is it pretty straight forward like most other brakes?


Pretty much... Just make sure the pads fit in with out forcing them. If they are too tight, it will bind up. Go to www.youtube.com for some video's on how to do jobs. Just search for brake replacement.

My 2005 Tiburon GT's rear brake pads appear shot, but the front still look great. Every other car I've had--the opposite has always been the case. Is this "normal" for the Tiburon?


this is normal cos the pads on the rear are smaller than the fronts.....remember to always leave the car in park NOT in nuetral,cos it WILL run away when the rear brakes get cold......

Replacing rear brake pads. I cannot get the calibers to spread and fit the new pads? How does the calibers move back in..


No do not use a c clamp to press the rotor back in unless you plan on breaking your clamp !!!! On that particular model of (Tiburon) the calipers screw back in.

I am changing the brake pads on our 2005 S-Type. How do you release brake pressure to reassemble?


You will need a large C-Clamp or a cailper piston tool. Place an old brake pad against the piston in the caliper and use the C-Clamp to push the brake pad against the piston to collapses the piston into the caliper. Also open the master cylinder cap and place a towel around the area to catch any brake fluid that would come out of the master cylinder as you collapes the piston, this normal, but doesn't always happen, depending on the level of fluid in the master cylinder.

How to collapse rear calipers on mini cooper


Did you notice the brake fluid level in the master cylinder before you tried to collapse the calipers? You should see a rise in level as you collapse them (however far they did collapse). If you're not seeing any change in the level (it should fill up) you might have a plugged valve between the caliper and the master cylinder. Loosen the brake fluid line to the caliper and try collapsing it again. If still no go, start dismantling the caliper and look for bent, broken, stuck or mal-adjusted pieces.

How do i change the back brakes on a 2006 tiburon


Disk Brakes - remove two 14mm bolts which mount the caliper to the rear hub assy. Remove the caliper. Remove the phillips screw which holds the rotor to the hub. Machine the rotor and reinstall on the hub & reinstall the phillips screw. Reinstall the caliper and remove one of the caliper hinge pin (sliding pin) 14mm bolts. Flip the caliper out of the way and replace the pads and anti-rattle springs. Recompress the caliper piston all the way back into its cylinder. Flip the caliper back into position and reinstall the 14mm bolts. Of course, you need to purchase the replacement pads and w/anti-rattle springs.
